Former deputy facing drug charges

Over the weekend, Indiana State Troopers Andrew Beaver and Ross Johnson arrested former Martin County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny R Salmon, 33, of Shoals, IN, for an outstanding Martin County arrest warrant for Dealing Schedule II and IV Controlled Substance.

 Late last year, Martin County Sheriff Travis Roush contacted the Indiana State Police Jasper Post and requested a special investigation after they had received information that Salmon was possibly involved in illegal drug activity.

 During his investigation, Sergeant Greg Ashby determined that Salmon had dealt hydrocodone and tramadol on multiple occasions during the fall of 2017.

 After the Martin County Prosecutor’s Office reviewed Ashby’s investigation an arrest warrant for Salmon was issued for the following charges:

  • Dealing in a Schedule II Controlled Substance, 1 Count, IC 35-48-4-2, Level 6 Felony
  • Dealing in a Schedule IV Controlled Substance, 1 Count, IC 35-48-4-3, Class A Misdemeanor

 Salmon bonded himself out of the Martin County Jail with $2,500 cash.
